IMCA TO HOLD FIBRE & HYBRID ROPE WORKSHOP IN AMSTERDAM

High value subsea construction rope plays a crucial role in the subsea construction industry. A seminar being held by the International Marine Contractors Association in Amsterdam on Wednesday 29 October will enable attendees to fully understand, and become involved with the discussion on, what is what is required by the subsea construction industry.
 
This includes the approaches taken in fibre and hybrid rope system adoption into subsea hoisting, the readiness of such systems and clarification of any technical developments still required to close any gaps preventing adoption, awareness of existing systems, their performance and track record.
 
This free-to-attend workshop, one in a biannual series of events organised by IMCA’s Crane & Winch Workgroup, follows the successful workshop on Optimal System Design.
 
“Proposals for presentations covering Fibre and Hybrid Ropes for Subsea Construction – ‘Are we ready?’ are now being collated for the workshop,” explains IMCA Technical Adviser, Mark Ford. “Topics that we are considering for discussion include:-
 

  • Fibre and coating selection and how this can affect performance
  • Rope design including splicing, repair, terminations, inspection and maintenance
  • Specialist jacketed and hybrid wire / fibre designs
  • Fibre rope hoisting winch design solutions and experience
  • Relevant codes and recommended practices 

“The hot topics that we hope to include within sessions are:-

  • Acceptance requirements for fibre and hybrid ropes / gap analysis – what are the stumbling blocks?
  • Inspection, repair and maintenance – technology requirements
  • Discard criteria
  • System integration – guidelines and issue awareness
  • End user requirements and experience 

“The previous workshop in the series attracted specialists from across the rope production/users community; we look forward to a similar number attending in October.”
